HistoryEdit

The first mention of Eldingen occurs in a document, affixed with seal, from the year 1231. It confirms the purchase of the Eldingen (Elthinge) church by a neighboring convent.[2]

The village became Protestant in 1543. As the seat of the Herren von Elding—with several free manors and a church—it survived the 30 Years War.
